Journal Play :-)

Design Cube 2 by France Papillon

When you have new stamps you just have to play in your journal. And did I say I'VE GOT NEW STAMPS??! You can see my full range for Stampotiqe Originals *here*. 

For a list of UK stockists please check my blog page *here*

I used Talens Amsterdam acrylics - standard range to create my background and added some extra pattern with stencils, and France's Design Cube.

Some of you have been asking how I colour my images .... It varies, but I often start with Copic markers, which I love but the end result can look a little flat. So I then add extra shading with Polychromos pencils by Faber Castell. A little while ago I did a quick tutorial on colouring images with pencils ... if you missed it you can check it out *here*.

Of course once I started making a creative mess at my desk (!)  I had to carry on. I'm loving the combination of two of the new Distress Inks - Abandoned Coral, and Fossilised Amber. Gorgeous colours! And my new Foxy looks right at home on that colour combo!
